Film star Burr hit Conrad in play (7,6)
I believe the answer is:
'film star' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I cannot tell whether it can be defined by this definition.
'burr hit conrad in play' is the wordplay.
'in play' is an anagram indicator.
'burrhitconrad' is an anagram of 'RICHARD BURTON'.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for richard burton that I've seen before include "Welsh actor, married twice to Elizabeth Taylor" , "Welsh actor, d. 1984" .)
